High School Is Already Filled
The Site Will Be Bought For
The first step toward manual training
in the Topeka school was taken by the
board of education at the meeting last
night when a resolution was passed
providing for the purchase of ths nine
lot on the corner of Harrison and
Eigrhtn streets opposite the present high
The board has been discussing the
proposed manual training- high school
for two years. The crowded condition
of the present high school building must
be relieved. Last term there were more
scholars in attendance than could be
comfortably accommodated. The at
tendance for the coming term will be
Increased. The board must provide some
relief for the high school and the plan
which has been suggested and discussed
' for a manual training high school
.irhlch will relieve the present high
school building and also provide manual
Some time ago ETdward Wilder and
P. I. Bonebrake bought the nine lots for
$9,500, which is considered a bargain.
When the present high school building
was built these same lots were offered
for $20,000. Mr. Wilder and Mr. Bone
brake bought them when the board was
unable to do so, with the idea of hold
ing them until the board would buy
thern for a manual training high school.
The lots will be sold to the board for
the same price for which they wern
bought. Mr. J. W. Gleed offered a res
olution to the effect that an option on
them be bought by the board, which
means that the board will buy them and
pay for them at the rate of $2,000 a
year until paid for.
Mr. E. E. Roudebush, a new member
of the board who took his seat last
night, opposed the plan. He seemed to
think that the price was too high, and
that a new high school is not needed.
Dr. A. S. Embree also opposed the reso
lution on the ground that the board
should build more graded schools before
another high school is built. Mr.
Wilder, who ia one of the strongest ad
vocates for a manual training high
school, explained his motive in buying
the lots with Mr. Bonebrake to aid the
board, and said: "We should have a
manual training school so that we will
turn out graduates who are capable of
working. We now turn out people who
can think and talk but cannot work,
Tbe labor unions allow but a certain
number of apprentices to work in the
shops. It means that the men have
shut tbe doors against their own boys.
They cannot go into the shops and learn
to be good mechanics. They are forced
out into the streets. The boy who in
turned out of our schools should ba
able to earn a good living as a useful
citizen. We had better begin to edu
cate tha children when they are a little
older and finish their education in a
manner which will make them useful
citizens. I believe in kindergarten work
and I believe in children going to school
when they are Ave years old instead of
seven, but before looking out for the
yomrpest children I think we should
look to the thorough education and
training of the older ones,"
J. W. Priddy, from the First ward,
said: "I believe the people wish to
reach out to. both the old and the young
pupils and, I vote for this resolution."
When the vote was taken tfce entire
membership of the board from the First,
Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth wards
voted for it. Both Dr, Embree and Mr.
Roudebush are from the Sixth ward.
When It came their time to vote there
were 10 votes for the resolution and nona
against. Dr. Embree voted a half each
way and Roudebush was the only one
to cast a vote against it.
At the September meeting the board
will decide upon a proposition for
the issuing of bonds for $100,000 for the
building of the manual training high
school and soma ward schools.
The meeting of the board was one of
those hand-to-hand sort of side-talks-with
affairs where every one enjoyed
himself. P. I, Bonebrake, chairman of
the finance committee, nearly created
a riot by appearing in his shirt sleeves.
Then he went to work in the voice of
an auctioneer reading bills. No one
listened to him and the bills were allow
ed. The members of the board seemed
quite jolly. They chatted and talked
and whispered regardless of such small
matters as bills.
The offer of R. J. Ketchum to pay $50fl
for the 16 lots owned by the board on
Taylor and Grant" streets in North To
pe ka was considered. Dr. J. F. Buck
and J. W. Priddy, the members from
the north side, declared the lots worth
"We had better keep them than sell
them at that price," suggested Mr.
"We might set a price on them," sug
gested Mr. Priddy.
"Set the price at $100 a lot," said Mr.
'Oh, that Is too much," said several.
"Well, you don't want to sell them,"
"Couldn't we move Douglass school
over there?" asked Mr. Wilder. "We
might get some scholars."
"About as many as we have at Doug
lass school in Lawman Hill," replied
Priddy referring to tbe scholarless
"Why not move the lots over the
river?" suggested Dr. Embree.
The staid old school fathers stopped
their raillery long enough to accept the
proposition of Chris States to repair the
boiler of the heating plant at Polk
school for $IS0. This Is another one of
the heating plant which did not result
The bid of F. P. Edson to put in san
itary piumbtng at Clay school for $1,658
was accepted. The report was received
that the school board's share of paving
tax for the 9 lots of Polk school on street
would be $1,069 and the paving tax of
the six Clay school lots on Clay street
would be 639. Mr. Matthews moved
that the paving tax be paid In Install
ments. "I second the motion as we are
busted now," said Mr. Bonebrake.
A communication from S. S. Ott ask
ed that during the winter the use of
the laboratory at the high school be
granted the T. M. O. A. for their classes
In chemistry. The request will be con
sidered. Superintendent Davidson suggested
that the fall term of the schools begin
Tuesday, September 2, and that date
was adopted by the board for the begin
ning of the term.
Mr. Edward Wilder, who attended the
National Teachers' association meeting at
Minneapolis, made some informal com
ments. He said he was surprised at the
convention to see that the majority of the
teachers present were quite young. He
remarlced that he thought the te.ioli.irs lii
the city schools, as a rule, are too young
and that the board should gradually work
older heads Into the teaching foree. Mr.
Gleed made some remark in sympathy
with Mr. Wilder' Ideas. . v
"I aitree with you," said Mr. Bonebrake,
who happens to be a banker. ''For in
stance, if we want a lawyer we want old
He looked at Mr. Gled, who happens te
be a lawyer. There was a silence for a
moment. Mr. Gleed was in deep thought.
The members of the board were listening
for the broadside. "Yet I have known
young1" bankers te discount old ones," re
plied Mr. Gleed.
The board then proceeded to transact
business and abandon repartee for a while.
Rev. F. E. Mallory was unanimously elect
ed president of the board and J. W- Gleed
was elected vice president, Joseph Stewart
was re-elected clerk. The new members
took their seats, Russell Barber succeeded
p-r. J. F. Buck from the First ward; Fred
Keith succeeded G, H. Matthew from the
Fifth ward and E. E. Roudebush succeed
ed J. W. Dailey from the Sixth ward.
The board decided on the school levy for
the coming year of 16 mills. The levy for
the general fund will be 12 mills, for the
building fund 8 mills and the interest and
Sinking fund 1 mill. The levy last year
was lo mills 8 the Interest and sinking
fund had been reduced a half mill since
1300 and will now be put back at the for
mer levy of I mill.
He Says It lias Been to Merit
the Respect of Labor.
Cleveland, Aug. 6. The employes of
the Cleveland City Railway company, of
which Senator M. A. Hanna is presi
dent, met in a downtown ball last night
and gave to Senator Hanna a valuable
cane. In acknowledging the gift Sena
tor Hanna expressed his sincere thanks
to his employes for their gift and inci
dentally spoke upon the relations that
he hopes soon to see existing between
capital and labor. In part, he said:
"I cannot adequately express my feel
ings on this occasion. It has been the
one ambition of my life to merit the
respect, if not the affection, f the men
in my employ. I have been with labor
ing men all my life and have been their
employer for many years, and this nipht
means something to me, for it brings
with it the satisfaction of knowing that
so large a number of men in my employ
have been satisfied with my career as
J'Tour chairman has referred to the
civlo federation. I say to you that were
it not for my official position and my
duties as a public servant, I would de
vote more of my time to the policies on
which that organization Is found."
Concerning the anthracite strike Sen
ator Hanna said: "When the great an
thracite strike was threatening our fed
eration worked nard for weeks to avert
it, to bring men and employers together.
but failed. After it was on we worked
hard to settle it, but failed. However,
in that matter it is my personal satis
faction to know that the statement that
I made at the time that he men would
not go back on their word, has been kept
and tnat a sympathetic strike has been
averted. I told the federation that there
would be no sympathetic strike among
tne bituminous miners.
"I believe in manhood, Labor organ
izations are not things which can be
sued for breach of contract. They have
no corporate existence. But I would
rather have the promise of a laboring
man. backed only by his sense of honor
and his manhood, than any agreement
wmct) might De enforced by law. Man.
hood and integrity are the same, wheth
er they belong to a miner, a street rail
way man or a boss. For myself, I have
no higher ambition than to work for the
purpose of bringing capital and labor
nearer together and to live out my life
in Cleveland, where I have lived for 62

an admonition, to
"don't let It occur
again," but Mr, R.
Waters and wife,
Eliaa Waters, both
colored, of S2i
Crane street, got a
change of program
this morning. The
pair have been In
the habit of fight
ing whenever the
spirit moved them.
and this morning
about o'clock, after they had absorbed
enough of the "spirit," they started a
rough house. Messrs, Henderson and
Wilcox, officers of the law, as it is writ
ten in Topeka, called at the Waters
residence in time to corral the family
and put out a blase started by them
while playing ping pong with the parlor
lamp. They had been absorbing boose
in large quantities, and It was evident
that the booze would not mix properly
with the Waters, so that the officers
found it necessary to gather the pair,
and escort them to the keep. This
morning when the court kindly fined
them only $35 per, Mrs. Waters shed bit
ter tears, and refused to be comforted
by the court's kindly assurance that it
was nothing serious.
The United Order of Imported Pot'
grangers were scheduled to syend the
balmy summer eve in picnlckiny on
the green sward in the city park, but
some cruel, heartless coppers surround
ed the bunch, confiscated the refresh
ments, and instead of the joyous time
scheduled, they are all doing time of
a different variety. Biessrs. Tom Smiley,
G. Washington White, Jas. Ryan, Jno.
Ryan, Jno, King and Julius Heme, all
members of theWprknlt Travelingmen's
union, met during the day and organized
the social order aforementioned. They
secured two cases of brew that made
some eastern village famous, together
with certain cabbages and potatoes.
Then they repaired to the hank of the
treacherous Kaw, which was perfectly
harmless as far as they were concern-
ed, as they had no Intentions of bathing.
When the patrol wagon arrived about
sun-down the entire bunch was hilar
iously full, and one member of the clan
was preparing to treat the assembly
to a rare hobo etew.containing cabbages,
potatoes, onions and other ingredients.
But alas, the stew will haunt them in
their dreams only. The rude policemen
grabbed the entire works, beer and all.
The cabbages and potatoes are still on
exhibition at the keep, but tbe beer
has strangely disappeared. Peace tc
the empty bottles! O, irony of fate! To
think that these Knights of the Rail
road Truck should be languishing on the
steingarten, with one day on and four
Contrary to all expectations. Chas.
Lawson, the jointist who was charged
with resisting an officer and carrying
concealed weapons, was discharged
from tne police court last evening,
Lawson's trial had been postponed be
cause his face, which had been treated,
or mistreated, by little Officer Barrett,
who is a facial fresco artist, would not
permit Mr. Lawson to attend the court
at an earlier date. After hearing the
evidence the court decided that the
charge of resisting an officer was noth
ing more than a personal fight between
the officer and Lawson, and that tne
big jointist had been sufficiently pun
ished. Mr. TJrmy seemed aggrieved be
cause Lawson was discharged on the
resistance clause, and refused to prose
cute on the other charges. This leavee
a slim opening for Lawson. to prosecute
Barrett on the charge of assault, and
it is the opinion of the entire force that
the court made a mistake.
Among the cases which will not be
prosecuted in police court is a strenuous
set-to between Fox and Devro, two
local colored musicians, who are wont
to plunk the banjo on the thoroughfares
and subsequently pass the Panama. It
seems that Mr. Fox filled his person
with bad brew last Saturday eve, and
afterward passed bis lid, taking up cer
tain and sundry coins. His partner.
Mr. Devro. called for a fair and im
partial division of the spoils, as per cus
tom, but Mr. Fox was filled with an
idea that he was too foxy for anything
like that. He could not even see his
partner as they passed by. As a gentle
reminder of his presence Mr. Pevro then
landed on Mr. Fox with the rim of bis
banjo, making therewith an embrasure
in Mr. Fox's pelt. Mr. Fox suddenly
came to, shook hands with his confed
erate, and swore that he was a gentle
man, and that he had done the proper
thing under the circumstances. It is
stated that he also made haste to divide
Arthur Sparks, the young Kansas Oity
man who was brought back by Deputy
Sheriff Stewart yesterday, charged with

of a former Kansas City detective. A
Kansas City paper Bays of the young
"The clerk In the cigar store reported
to his employer that the cigars had been
taken from him by force, but Sparks
says he and his companion won them
playing a slot machine. Anyone who
knows young Sparks can readily credit
his story. It is currently believed her
that: the slot machine that he cannot
beat has not yet been invented. So
large and constant were his winnings
when the gambling Slot machines were
in vogue that it is said he was finally
barred from purying them.
"Young Sparks would never reveal the
secret of his success in hypnotising an
unresponsive piece of machinery so that
it give up to him the coin accumulated
from the contributions of the gullible,
but his 'ability' in that direction cannot
be Questioned." -
If he ean prove that he won the cigars
from James, it will be one on the estab
lishment. Under any circumstances the
boy in charge of the store acted fool
ishly In allowing Sparks to play a dol
lar on the side. Owner of the penny
machines say they cannot even afford
to allow a side bet of a dime on the
whirl, as the machine are so made that
they pay only a small margin to the

premiers will have nothing to do with a
customs union, since It would mean a
loss of revenue whlqh the states they

CAREER IS CHECKED.
A Swindler fall Down en Bis Vint
San Freneiaeo, Aug, B.w"Liutenant"
Edgar N. Coffey of New York has been ar.
rested in Oakland, charged with passing
a bogus check on Mrs. Barbara, a land
lady of the Oalindo hotel. His arrival at
the hotel a few days ago was preceded by
letter from Portland, Ore., purporting
to be signed by George W, Mclver, captain
of the Seventh Infantry, U. 8. A., stating
that Coffey was a seeond lieutenant of
that company who had been sent south on
official business, requesting- that his name
and rank be kept secret and asking the
hotel people to cash a check for $160, which
had been given him. The letter was writ,
ten pn official paper and the lieutenant
brought with him many apparently gen
'ulne credentials. The check was cashed
by Mrs. Barbara, whose suspicions were
aroused, however, when a second check
was presented by Coffey. An investigation
was made and his arrest followed.
Among his effects were found a great
number of, army official envelopes, large
quantities of army stationery, many army
transportation blanks, a number of blank
checks and a large army revolver. At first
he strongly protested his innocence, but
finally admitted that be was not what he
claimed to be, but asserted that this was
his first offense against tbe law. He Is
a man of fine appearance and good ad
dress. STEAMER LINES COMBINE.
Blorgan and Cromwell Interests Have
New York, Aug.S. In connection with
the Southern Pacific railroad's new ar.
